Eibar did a good job in their last LaLiga 2 fixture away to Tenerife when they were a bit sharper and took a close 0:1 victory.
The guests were passive to say at least during the first part, but improved their appearance in the second, and scored the only one in this clash over Tejero, who was accurate in the 76th minute.
Eibar is positioned at the leading spot on the table, sharing the same amount of points as their closes Gijon.
Left-back Tono (7/0), central-backs Arbilla (4/0) and Etxeita (5/0) should be out injured, as well as offensive Sol (8/1). Forward Feuillassier (8/0) is doubtful now.
Basel didn’t have any problems winning at home over Kairat Almaty in the previous round, as they already had a 4:0 lead at the start of the second halftime (two goals from Lang, one from Arthur and Ndoye), lowering down the tempo later on and conceding twice without further issues.
Combined with a point away to Qarabag, they are now in a decent situation, but will need points here in order to avoid all the doubts as soon as possible and probably seek the first position right away.
As for the domestic league, they are doing pretty fine, coming from a 1:0 victory away to Sion, as they keep to lead the table with two points more than Zurich and probably more important, four more than Young Boys.
The Swiss team failed to be more creative last time out in the Champions League campaign on the road to Atalanta when they appeared to passively and suffered a loss with a minimal result.
They were pushed back by the hosts since the start and managed to withstand the pressure up until the 68th when they conceded over Pessina, unfortunately, not being even close to responding accordingly.
Goalkeeper Faivre (2/0, not the first choice) is injured, as well as defender Zesiger (4/0), and long-term absentees, defender Lustenberger, midfielder Petignat and forward Nsame – all three without playing in the new season anyway.
Villarreal made a more than competitive appearance in their last European clash away against much-favored Manchester United but still suffered a defeat with a close 2:1 result.
Club Brugge made a more than decent appearance last time out in Europe when they recorded a surprising 1:2 away victory over Leipzig, proving the bookies and almost everyone else quite wrong in this one.
They conceded early in the 5th, but responded in the best way possible, reversing the result to their favor with goals over Vanaken and Rits already during the first part, and even though they were significantly pushed back in the continuation, they survived the attacks of the hosts, and deservedly celebrated after this clash.
The hosts miss defender Mitrovic (3/0), as well as offensive Providence who didn’t play yet anyway. Defender Balanta (9/1) is probably not fully fit for all ninety minutes.
Manchester City failed to be more creative last time out in the Champions League campaign away to PSG when they suffered a routine 2:0 defeat.
Venezia can be satisfied with their last appearance on the road against Cagliari when they barely escaped defeat and took a point in a 1:1 draw.
They conceded first in the 19th over Balde but visibly increased their performance when the match moved to the second and equalized over Busio just before the match ended, denying the home side with all three in this encounter.
Venezia is second from the bottom in the standings, having only five points collected so far in the Serie A campaign.
They will miss long-term absentee forward Ala-Myllymaeki (no appearance this season), plus injured goalkeeper Lezzerini (2/0). Defenders Haps and Modolo (both without playing so far), and midfielder Sigursson (2/0) continue to miss out too.
Rosenborg has put themselves in a good position for medals this season have progressed, being 4th and 1 point behind KBK, it looks like Molde are winning Saturday evening against poor Tromsø at home so I believe they will go for bronze.
They have some missings but no one is new from the last couple of matches so they will field a strong team home at Lerkendal, they are with 7-1-2 scoring goals, averaging 2.6 at home. I really like the offence to RBK in players like Vecchia, Holm, Ceide, Carlo House and Vagic, they will for sure put the opposition’s defence for a serious test this evening.
Lazio failed to meet the expectations in their last Seria A fixture away to Bologna when they suffered a pretty convincing 3:0 defeat.
They simply appeared to passively in this clash and paid the price with three conceded after sixty-eight minutes of play, while having a player less on the field since the 76th, reduced their chances for a comeback to zero.
Lazio holds the 6th spot in Serie A, being four points in deficit compared to the Champions League positioned Roma.
Central defender Acerbi (7/0) is suspended now, while midfielder Zaccagni (2/0) remains injured. Striker Immobile (6/6) is doutbful coming off from injury problem, but should appear.
Eibar is coming to this clash after a minor setback in their last away fixture against Mirandes when they took only a point in a 3:3 draw.
The match was heading in the right direction for the guests, as they had a 1:3 lead after fifty-three minutes of play, but apparently lost their focus in the continuation, and allowed the hosts to reduce from the penalty in the 72nd and completely equalize the result in the last minutes of the encounter.
Eibar is positioned at the 5th spot in LaLiga 2 rankings, overly looking, appearing quite well, as they haven’t tasted defeat in their last seven encounters.
Left-back Tono (7/0) and central defender and team captain Arbilla (4/0) both continue to miss out.
In this match of Qualifiers for the World Cup 2022, Argentina will play at the home ground against Peru.
The home side is currently in second place with 22 points from ten rounds played. Peru is in 7th place with 11 points. In this match, I will go with an easy win for Argentina.
The home team has close the gap to Brazil to only six points after they have won against Bolivia and Brazil drew against Colombia. They are without a loss for 24 matches in a row. The last time they lost at home was in 2019.
Against Peru they won nine out of the last ten matches played at home. Messi is back in form and he will lead them once again in this match.
USA disappointed in their last appearance on the road against underestimated Panama, as they failed to be concrete enough with the ball and suffered a close 1:0 defeat.
They simply appeared to passively during the whole clash and were punished in the 54th over Godoy, unfortunately not having a concrete answer with their inert performance.
Nevertheless, USA is doing well so far in the campaign, as they are currently at the 2nd spot in the rankings, having three points less than leaders from Mexico.
Goalkeeper Horvath (7/0, Noffingham Forest) misses out, as well as defenders Brooks (45/3, Wolfsburg), Ream (46/1, Fulham), Sands (7/0, New York), midfielder Yueill (15/0, San Jose), and forwards Pulisic (40/16, Chelsea) and Sargent (19/5, Norwich) and Pefok (8/1, Young Boys) compared to previous call-ups.
